Wisdom teeth removal
Wisdom teeth are also known as the third molar sit right at the back of your mouth. There are four wisdom teeth in total however not everyone has all of them or any. They tend to erupt during adolescence and can cause a range of oral health problems. These problems include:
- Repeated gum infection
- Dental decay
- Damage to your cheek
- Movement in your other teeth
- Risk of jaw fracture
These issues often cause people to have their wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth removal has become a standard general dental procedure. At Dental on York, our dentists are experienced in successfully removing wisdom teeth. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthetic. Your dentist may have to make a small incision in your gum to access the molar and remove it. The procedure is safe and relatively quick with minimal downtime.
Root canal treatment
A root canal procedure may be recommended if you have a badly infected tooth. The main cause of root canal infection is severe tooth decay. This decay is often caused by untreated cavities, cracks and chips in your teeth. A root canal procedure involves removing the infection from inside your tooth. This procedure is done under local anaesthetic to maximise patient comfort. Here are the steps of a root canal procedure:
- The tooth and surrounding area are numbed
- A special dental tool is used to clean out the infected canals
- The inside of your tooth is thoroughly disinfected
- The canal is filled with a special rubber substance called gutta-percha (this prevent reinfection from occurring)
- A crown is placed on top to offer further protection if required
This entire procedure can usually be done in one appointment.
Orthodontics is a specialised area of dentistry that addresses the diagnosis, prevention and correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontics are used in both general and cosmetic dentistry. With orthodontic treatments we are able to:
- Fix overcrowding
- Realign teeth
- Straighten teeth
- Remove gaps between teeth
The benefits go beyond aesthetics, orthodontic treatment can actually improve the health of your teeth. Overcrowded and crooked teeth are harder to clean and put you at a greater risk of dental decay. Misaligned bites can cause headaches and pains in your neck, they can also put you at greater risk of injury. Orthodontics can help to fix these issues. At Dental on York, we offer both braces and Invisalign.
Sleep apnoea treatment
Sleep apnoea can negatively impact your oral health and general wellbeing when left untreated. Luckily, there are multiple treatment options available to you. At Dental on York, we can help you manage the disorder by working alongside your sleep physician.
Mild cases of sleep apnoea can be treated with a custom-made mouth splint. The device looks similar to a mouthguard and is worn during sleep. It works by keeping your jaw in an optimal position to reduce the risk of narrowing airways. The device can protect your oral health and give you a restful night’s sleep. A CPAP machine is recommended for more severe cases.
Persistent jaw pain with clicking or popping noises can be a sign of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ disorder). Over 60% of Australians experience some of these symptoms with 5-12% requiring professional treatment. TMJ disorder is most commonly found in adults but can affect people of all ages.
TMJ disorder is a common dental issue but it can be difficult to find a dental professional who specialises in the area. The good news is we can help!
